Abstract: The article shows the importance of the professional development in the teaching, followed by cases supporting mathematics education. Inspired by the notion that mathematics is for all, two teachers from St Clare College in Pembroke, created the co-taught class with bottom set students to encourage them in solving mathematical work beyond the syllabus. Opening-up wider access to the knowledge and scaffolding method had taken the students' level further. In a second initiative by Department of Curriculum Management, Tikka Matematika was designed to promote collaboration among teachers and innovative pedagogical practices in teaching mathematics. With also extending to the secondary level, the conference creates a room for the new development in the teaching profession. The cases mentioned above are the evidence that nourishing community, giving trust into the hands of teachers and encouraging them to seek innovative ways to raise the standards of students’ learning might contribute to the proper recognition of their profession.
